The reason would be because of the wire runs or specifically the distance from source to device. Your water heater is close to the battery, the fuse panel is on the other side of the van. Yes, you can overcome by using larger wire for less voltage drop. Also, you need to take into account the breaker that is protecting the fuse panel, with this additional load, you may need to increase that breaker. I am not sure what the rating of the fuse panel is, but you also need to take that into account. Do you have an inverter/charger specifically I am asking what size cables are coming from the battery to the other side of the van,
